Title: The Quote boxes infinity Mirror problem - Can it be discouraged?
Post by: Koltar on July 29, 2022, 12:25:15 PM
In the D&D Movie thread and several others people are doing so many 'quote' or 'quote boxes' that wind up being layered on top of each other and looking like an 'Infinity Mirror'. This makes those threads almost unreadable and near impossible to follow any discussion.

 Is there a way to discourage this? Or cut down the number of layered quotes or inset quoting?

How else are you supposed to build an evidence trail to incriminate the other poster in Table-Top RPG Court?

"Ah ha! Your box 23 contradicted what you said in box 12!!! Bailiff, seize him!"

I agree with this Klingon.

I'm one of the participants. Sorry about that. I will try to not do that anymore. I agree, it makes things difficult to read, and should have remembered that when I was quoting all those boxes.
